QUEEN OF HEARTS, by Rhys Bowen

8/series of Royal Spyness mysteries starring Lady Georgiana Rannoch, 34th in line for the British throne. Which means that she is too royal to work and too broke not to. In this delightful tale,  Georgie's mother, a self-absorbed stage actress, decides to cross the Atlantic and visit Reno, home of the quickie divorce. The much-married former Duchess of Rannoch whisks Georgie onto the Berengaria, where most of the passengers are wealthy, and many own fabulous jewelry. Pining for her not-quite-fiance Darcy O'Mara, attempting to play deck quoits without wounding bystanders, and trying to ignore her mother's endless flirtations, the not-always-graceful Georgie becomes embroiled in a possible man-overboard, and then a jewel heist.

On board the Berengaria is a Hollywood mogul and his mistress, and it's fated that the famous Cy Goldman asks the famous British actress to come to Hollywood. Where all hell breaks loose. Delightful, as always, this book also shows a bit more of Darcy and Georgie and their on-going romance. Well done! It's a 4.
